Hi WI members!

I want to remind you something about tags...

When I first joined WI (It was my first forum) I didn't get what a tag was for.

I normally see tags like this (I'm just using Jellybeans as an example, if your username is Jellybeans, I am not referring to you, lol)

"Jellybeans was here!!"
"Jellybeans got a tag"
"Jellybeans likes Cheese!"
".:Jellybeans:."

Or sometimes I see tags like this:

"This thread is crap"
"Don't come here"

Or, I have even had tags about me like this:

"Jellybeans stinks"
"Jellybeans is mean"
"Jellybeans should go away"

Now, do you even know what tags are for?

They are to help people search for threads.

I have tried to search for a thread by tags, and it said "Nothing found"

So PLEASE....

When you make a tag,

[make sure it relates to the thread] ask yourself: If I wanted to find the (say, DCT for example) DCT searching by tags, could this tag help me?

If you answer No, then change the tag
If you answer yes, go ahead and make the tag

[Make sure it won't hurt anyone's feelings]
Tags like "Don't come here" or "Jellybeans should go away"
make people feel really bad.
ask yourself: if somebody made this tag about me, would I feel unwanted? Or upset?


I have had people ask me what a tag was for...

so PLEASE use tags for what they are supposed to be used for.

FAQ about tags:

could I make tags like: "Great thread!"?
Yes. If somebody was looking for a good thread in the general discssions/chat that would help them.

Can I just sign my name as a tag?
I wouldn't reccomend it. I have to admit I did that before, but that was when I didn't know what a tag was, and I thought it was a place to sign your name. lol. It doesn't help people find that thread though. Maybe put something that relates to the thread so you can find it later w/o subscribing, and it can help others, too!

*will add questions and answers as you think of them/I think of them*

Great reminder! You don't see threads about this often!
Also, if you ever see a thread with a rude tag, flag the very first post, and write "Rude tag, please remove," or something like that. The mods will take care of it, and the do know who wrote it.
Rep!

Well, you could, but tags are mainly for people trying to find a specific thread, and "~ljfyle" might not help.

There is no harm, but why would be looking for tags by a specific user? Just wondering.
